ladyweasal oarfish tend to only surface when they are dying or there is severe seismic activity in the area, them surfacing now could indicate that alot more tsunami triggering earthquakes may be soon to strike on the lower shelves of the ocean, an earthquake that would be devestating to such ocean lying areas

this is an average sized oarfish...I love how peopls shout FAKE wheneve they see something they have never seen before that looks amazing...

small minded people shout FAKE when instead they should GOOGLE to find out if it is possible or not.

thanks morons, but the rest of us are able to figure out if something is fake or not w/o your help, so feel free to take a break.

This doesn`t look shopped at all. It`s a big fish. Not everything in the ocean is the size of a goldfish. >.>

Of course it`s `shopped, Nessie. Because there`s obviously no f*cking way they took more than one picture of it.

Actually, oarfish can get to be 17 METERS long, not feet long. This photo is not even a picture of a particularly large one. Google it, you`ll see some really impressive photos of some of these fish, which are the largest boney fish in the ocean.

"The Japanese believe that the appearance of the Oarfish is a portent of doom."

"The fish are indicators of bad things to come. "

if it is, then why are they looking so happy for being able to catch it? O.o


Because they aren`t Japanese?

Gonna be `that person` and say it`s photoshopped. Still probably a pretty damn long fish, but not *that* long. Look at the centre guy`s shoulders/head, possible that the pic was stretched out to make the fish longer.

Thanks for the link jamper :-)

I think that maybe the old saying might have some truth. Back in the old days there was no way of monitoring or knowing about quakes in other places of the world, and plate movement probably does affect these fish. Im sure it wasnt uncommon for them to show up before a large quake in Japan.
